Stephen Bergstein is a gifted civil rights attorney based in NY and also a bona fide music devotee. He has written a very interesting analysis and commentary about Lennon v.

Conservative commentator Ben Stein (Bueller, anyone?), used a portion of John Lennon’s “Imagine” in a documentary about intelligent design. Yoko sued for copyright infringement and lost. The court found Stein’s use transformative.
